'''''DarkAndStormyNight''''' is a 2009 movie by Larry Blamire of ''Film/TheLostSkeletonOfCadavra'' fame. It is an homage to the OldDarkHouse movies of the 1930s, complete with LampshadeHanging moments. It features a large cast of stereotypical characters at an OldDarkHouse for the reading of the will of Sinas Cavendar. Some are there to see what they got, and others are there by accident, or are they? During the reading, the lights go out and the lawyer reading the will is killed, leaving in doubt the possession of Sinas' estate. As the night progresses, more and more of the guests in the house are killed off by a mysterious murderer. Can the two ace reporters figure out who's doing it before they are the next victims?

-->Feeding things will keep them alive.

* FrenchMaid: Jane wears a French Maid uniform, though it lacks any fanservice. And she has a cockney accent, rather than a french accent.

-->It's really bad. And nasty.
* StylisticSuck: Most of the film is pretty deliberately campy, but extra credit goes to Larry Blamire's performance as Ray.
* UpperClassTwit: Both Lord Partfine and Burling Famish Jr. play different types of twist: Partfine is the silly ass, while Burling is the disreputable cad.



* WhatTheHellHero: The police admit that they knew what was going on, but they let everyone get murdered to solidify their case against the murderer. They don't get chewed out, ''per se'' but the reporters are rather bewildered that the cops would just let it happen.
